Year 5/6 2018 - 2019

Mr Wilde

During the Spring Term in Y5/6, some of our work will be centred around the theme of 'Is Chocolate a Gift From The Gods?' The children will be finding out about the Maya Gods, researching information about North and Central America and comparing Niagara Falls with the Lake District. In Science, the children will be learning about Light - even making their own periscopes!


Also this term, we will be focussing on writing persuasive adverts in English- as well as developing our report writing techniques. In Mathematics, the children will be working on decimals, percentages and algebra. The children will be participating in indoor athletics and tennis, as well as producing their own Pop Art.
